Pre-race routine:

Got there with plenty of time, hit the bathroom.
Event warmup:

Decent warmup, 1.5 miles, first loop. Did some sprints also.
  • 16m 28s
  • 2.49 miles
  • 06m 37s  min/mile

Good run, maybe a bit fast for the 1st mile. Didn't recall the rollers on the 2nd loop. Relatively happy with time. Really good weather.
What would you do differently?:

Should have warmed up with the 2nd loop, would have been mentally prepared for the rolling hills. Not that it would have changed much.
Post race
Warm down:

No warmdown. Walked to building for post-race refreshments.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training volume. Need to increase miles.

Event comments:

Good race, classic golf course XC race. Good comp too.
